I absolutely love this DIY Hobby Lobby Window Makeover, and it is a great reminder that not all DIY projects have to start from scratch. Sometimes, it can be just as fun, and the project can look just as amazing when we just repurpose the decor we already have.
That’s what I did with an Easter window frame I found at Hobby Lobby! The window frame was already adorable exactly as it was, but I wanted something for everyday decor, and I was slightly obsessed with the window frame.

How to do a DIY Hobby Lobby Window Makeover
Start making this adorable farmhouse decor by removing the wreath and bunny from the front of the Hobby Lobby window. Then, hot glue nautical rope down the back sides of the window.
The rope makes the sides level with the center of the window so we can attach the craft sticks and plank the four squares of the window.
Next, place craft sticks over the open spaces of the window and mark where you need to trim them so they fit without hanging over the edges.
I used 25 giant craft sticks for this DIY project – five for each open space of the window. Once you have them all trimmed to the same size, it is time to stain them.
Lay all the craft sticks out, pour a bit of Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint into a small mixing bowl, add a little water, and mix it together.
Then, use a wet wipe to spread the paint/water mixture onto the trimmed craft sticks. The water helps the wood absorb the paint and gives it a stained finish rather than a painted look.
Allow the craft sticks to dry (I used my heat gun to speed up the drying process), and hot glue them across the back of the Hobby Lobby window frame.
Next, use the same staining technique you used on the craft sticks to stain the letters. I made my decor say “HOME,” but you can use whichever letters you want!
Dry the letters, then use a dry paintbrush to paint each of the letters white. Keep a light hand when you’re painting, and you’ll get an effortless distressed finish! You can always go back over the letters with a sanding sponge to distress more if you want to.
I then used Pewter Grey Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint and went around the edges of each of the letters. Adding the light grey adds dimension to the letters and creates an aged look.
Lastly, I painted the actual edge of the letters with black paint. This helps make the letters pop, and also adds to the aged look! Once all the paint is dry, hot glue each of the letters onto the craft sticks on your window frame.
The finishing touches
I pulled the greenery off the grapevine wreath that was on the Hobby Lobby window frame and hot glued them at the top of the window, with the stems pointing to the center of the top. I used twine to hold the stems together before I hot glued the greenery to the window.
Next, I made a bow out of the burlap/lace ribbon and a piece of jute twine. Wrap the ribbon around your fingers a couple of times, then pinch the center and secure it with a piece of jute twine.
Fluff the ribbon on each side of the jute twine, and hot glue the bow over the stems of the greenery at the top of the window. Lastly, I added a super cute bling from Totally Dazzled to the center of the bow!
